November

Knit your own Socks or a Giant Christmas Stocking!
Tuesday 6th November and Tuesday 20th November 2018 7 - 9.30pm
Join this fun, two-part workshop and learn how to make your own socks ‘in the round’ - either on double-pointed needles or a specially-designed circular needle - which means that there is absolutely no sewing up to be done afterwards!

Participants can choose from a wide selection of self-patterning sock wool, which does the colourwork for you, or alternatively opt for a thicker yarn to make one giant sock to use as a Christmas stocking with contrast heel and toe.

One -to-One Tuition

If you are unable to come to a workshop on a particular date, Heather does offer one-to-one tuition which she can tailor to whatever you are interested in learning.

Knit and Knatter Group

The B2K K&K is an opportunity for knitters of all ages and levels of experience to get together informally over a cup of tea/coffee for a Knit and a Knatter. These are purely social gatherings so no tuition is provided. For those wanting to learn to knit, or a little refresher on certain techniques, please have a look at our workshops page. Or why not book some friendly one-to-one tuition with Heather for as little as £7.50 per 15 mins at the Born to Knit studio at Fisherton Mill.

Heather runs two ‘Knit & Knatter’ groups, both in Salisbury. For information about dates, times and arrangements, please see the Born to Knit website.
